- Parenting, Genes, Nature vs Nurture
Parenting—defined as how parents rear and interact with their children in physical practices, how parents provide emotional support, and what environment parents provide for their children—plays an important role in children’s development. People usually think of parenting from nurturist perspective, but this is not exactly true. In fact, parents’ and children’s genes will affect parenting and the environment children seek. Cultures may shape parenting differently, but children in different cultures could be born with different genes, which makes them have different susceptibility to types of parenting behaviors. Therefore, genes are crucial to parenting behaviors.
